Summary

Brimming with vivid historical detail, King Tut and the Girl Who Loved Him is a thrilling tale of a modern teenager catapulted into the glory and intrigue of Egypt's 18th Dynasty.

Johanna Wilson is a quick-thinking fifteen-year-old with a penchant for falling into trouble and digging her way out again. After a rough day at school, Johanna comes home, eager for a nice, relaxing evening. But while reading a book on ancient Egypt, she's suddenly "misplaced" from her apartment in twenty-first century Miami to Egypt's 18th Dynasty.

A few strange twists of fate later, Johanna is masquerading as Princess Johenaten, cousin to Pharaoh Tutankhamun and member of Egypt's royal family. Completely dependent on the pharaoh for her safety and comfort, she also knows from her high school history class that the king will die soon. And when he does, her life will be in jeopardy.

Johanna's search for answers to the pharaoh's fate takes her on a dangerous journey into the inner circle of the most powerful kingdom on Earth. Surrounded by treachery and deceit, Johanna vows to uncover the threat to Pharaoh Tutankhamun's life, scarcely realizing how her actions will change the lives of those around her-and the course of history.
